home and we are standing by. but today, a different song book. today they are looking at polls that show the american people including large numbers of republicans, expect them to reach a compromise to be reasonable and you are starting to hear a different tune. the added pressure from wall street, yesterday, when news of this "gang of six," deal broke, and president obama had embraced it, the stock market took off. that sent a message, again, to republicans in the freshman class that, wait, we cannot afford to anger people who are giving money to our re-election campaign. >>shepard: the market had the best day of the year yesterday on that news. there are, sometimes, opinions. and sometimes there are facts. facts can be pesky things. but the thing is, you cannot do this if you don't raise more revenue. the numbers are not there.
